I find these frozen pizzas to be rather disgusting, so they did not get eaten. Pretty soon, they passed their expiration date. It's not like I could drop them off at a food bank, so today, I put a quick ad up on Craigslist offering them for free and clearly explaining that they were expired (thinking I would probably just end up throwing them away tomorrow if no one responded).
Well, people responded. The ad went up at 3:00 and by 5:30 I had 18 responses, to be exact. Several people said in their emails that their family was struggling and needed all the help they could get. Many people even said that they live right in my neighborhood and could be at my house in a matter of minutes.
This was a wake-up call for me. I knew that many families were going through difficult times financially, but today it hit pretty close to home. If we can afford to give, even just a little bit, let's not delay, ok?
